Choosing Barry to detail your car is so much more than paying for a quick valet, you are paying for an established full time detailer to do a professional, out standing job & experience an amazing result that only comes from years of experience. Spending money on what you value is extremely important, so why not buy quality & professionalism. The time taken on each stage of the job is amazing. Barry does not rush anything, if you have spoken to him on the phone or visited him at his unit you will know he has time to explain everything & asks you questions to get you the right program for your vehicle. He will not palm you off & will not hurry you out of the door. Everyone is unique, each car is unique & each detail is unique. He is not a salesman & does not have clever tactics to get business. From the time you get in touch with him you will deal with Barry, until he walks you around your finished car going through the things that have been done at the very end of the detail, you will deal with Barry
Only me is the answer to both question. I don't have any employees, I do all the work myself. Your car will only ever be taken outside for the wash stages & once back inside in the premises will stay there until its collected
Yes very easy. I am located on the out skirts of Cannock, Staffordshire. The M6 junction 11 is 5 minutes away, the M6 Toll T7 is 2 minutes away, there is a local train station which goes straight to Birmingham New Street & Wolverhampton station has a Virgin service to London & is 25 minutes away
No ! my business is not built on this type of work, I pride myself on true paint correction. Which means safe removal of the defects present without the use of masking agents/polishes, this is called true paint correction. The finish you leave with on your cars paintwork is the true finish & will not drop back after a couple of washes. This is why paint correction takes days not hours to achieve, Rome wasn't built in a day & paint correction isn't either
The main advantage of working in my own unit is the weather has no bearing on your detail what so ever, if its forecast bad weather on your collection day I'll work with you & if I can, will always try to keep the car over night so you can collect the following day when it's dry
Yes, there are 3 insurance policies in place for my business. I'm fully insured to drive any car with full road risks (which is the traders policy equivalent to fully comprehensive) up to £100,000 & to keep the car in the unit over night. In the event of your car exceeding this limit I can raise that cover amount with my insurers with a simple email, there is an additional cost which will be outlined in your quote. £5,000,000 public liability cover & insured to work on your car too
Barry started Auto Detox in 2005 as a full time detailing business & has been working full time since. Over a decades experience working on everything from a £1,000,000 Bugatti Veyron, 1971 Porsche RS light weight to a Volkswagen Sharan as a new car detail. He uses his experience & knowledge to get the best out of every car he works on, no matter what the badge on the bonnet says. The car will always get his full attention, workmanship, guaranteed.
To secure your dates in the diary a deposit of £50 or £100 is required (depending on the detail) at the time of booking. A receipt will be emailed to you along with a detail confirmation outlining works to be carried out. Which I'll ask you to read thoroughly & confirm everything is correct. If you cancel within 7 days of your booking the deposit is non-refundable. If you need to move the booking before this time period I will be more than happy to find a convenient date for you. Deposit payment can be made by bank transfer, cash, card in person at the unit. Final balance can be made via credit card or debit card (all cards incur a 1.75% fee). Bank transfer or cash. Balance is to be paid in full at the end of the detail, prior to the car leaving the unit, with no exceptions.
Feel free to email or phone with any queries you have. If you want to stop by the studio for a visit & chat in person, you are welcome to anytime, please just phone before hand to arrange a convenient time for us both
